In a London psychiatric hospital, a wildly enigmatic young Afro-Caribbean patient is about to be released … until he announces that he is the son of exiled African dictator Idi Amin. Questions of ethnicity, poverty, racism and power emerge as two psychiatrists search for the truth, even as the patient’s story becomes unnervingly plausible. Winner of virtually every major London award during its run there, including The Laurence Olivier Award for Best Play.
